Re: Michael Smith
Steve Goodman's version had more lilt to it, and as it was the first version I ever heard, it colored my singing of it for a long time. Bob's reading was, of course, terrific. Liam Clancy's was much slower and more melancholy, but equally effective.
Added note: I had the pleasure of singing this song with Josh White, Jr., in Mike and Mikey's suite several years ago.
